MASK ON THE SHADOW( for George Floyd) by rak


after a long night
of riots, unrest
can’t begin to imagine
what’s coming next
a man was murdered
a cop was charged
in these days of disease
as the shadow grows large

they chant, carry signs
and march thru the streets
spreading the word
and disease in the heat
just a matter of time
something bound to burst
a man killed in the street
but the shadow still thirsts

can’t bring George Floyd back
his life carelessly snuffed
human lives matter
enough is enough
there’s tears and there’s grief
we’re in this together
there’s a mask on the shadow
will tomorrow be better
